Guv stresses on safety measures at Mechukha ALG

ITANAGAR, 13 Jun: Governor BD Mishra on Monday emphasised on ensuring safety measures at the advanced landing ground (ALG) in Mechuka in Shi-Yomi district.

Chairing a high-level security meeting at the Raj Bhavan here, the governor advised the Shi-Yomi district administration to put up “no-constructions zone notifications” around the Mechukha ALG, and to ensure implementation of the notification.

“Construction of buildings and other structures within notified areas around the ALG must not be allowed,” he said.

Mishra also called for “better and prompt coordination” between the Indian Air Force and the state’s civil aviation department “for optimising the air services in Mechukha.”

The ALGs must be safely used for civilian traffic, in addition to flying for national defence, he said.

Among others, Legislative Assembly Speaker PD Sona, Air Vice Marshal Surat Singh, the eastern air command’s air defence commander, and Chief Secretary (in-charge) Kaling Tayeng participated in the meeting. (Raj Bhavan)
